Matthew Stafford, Kenny Golladay officially questionable against Saints

Expectations for the New Orleans Saints post-bye
The Saints are always tough to beat in the Superdome, especially coming off of a bye, and with Detroit coming off a tough loss and dealing with injuries, I favor New Orleans in this one. The Lions were down nearly the entire second half, and as good as QB Matt Stafford has been in the fourth quarter, he didn't have enough magic to bring them back in this one. "That's as loud a stadium as you play in in the NFL", Stafford said. He was sacked six times by both Minnesota and Carolina.
Stafford's streak of consecutive games is in stark contrast to what he went through in his first two years after being drafted with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009. The Saints will play their two games against the Falcons in December, and if the Saints play better down the stretch and get more and more into playoff contention, then beating the Falcons is not even a question to consider.
Three Dead After Horror Skydiving Accident
It is reported that a female diver was was tandem diving with an instructor when they crashed into a solo skydiver mid air. THREE skydivers have been killed in a popular Australian resort in what authorities believe was a mid-air collision.
Through four games, New Orleans ranks fourth in the league in total offense, averaging 371 yards per game, and the team has yet to commit a turnover. "When they need plays he just finds a way to make them and that's what you want from your quarterback".
The following year, he hurt his right shoulder in Detroit's opener and missed more than a month. Im not buying into the Saints defense just yet, and with Matt Stafford at QB, its a good bet that the Lions will rally in the 4th quarter if they are down.
In a 2014 win over the Saints in Detroit, Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the final 3:38 to lift the Lions to a 24-23 victory. That unit also probably made the key play of the game, when cornerback Ken Crawley picked off Jay Cutler in the end zone as the Dolphins threatened to take the lead. Drew Brees has historically taken good care of the ball, but the Lions did intercept three of his passes (and force a fumble they didn't recover) in their win previous year. We certainly have a lot to prove now being that I think that we've turned the corner this year. And finally, 22 of Detroit's past 29 regular-season games have been decided by one score or less.
If Stafford's mobility is affected by his ankle, New Orleans may be able to defend him a bit better this time. "We have a smart crowd, they know situations".
